The OPPO Reno Pivots Selfie Camera Innovation In A New Direction

Its pop-up camera mechanic is far less jarring in presentation

Pop-up cameras are currently an in-thing for smartphones, and it works quite well to ensure the phone's display is undisturbed by pesky notches or punch-hole cameras. However, most pop-up module designs involve a small square camera module rising above the phone's frame, which is actually pretty jarring. OPPO has somewhat resolved that issue by introducing a sharkfin-like pop-up module which they dubbed Pivot-Rising Structure in their recently launched smartphone, the OPPO Reno. The difference? It's far more discreet. Aside from that interesting innovation, the OPPO Reno is equipped with a 6.4-inch OLED display with up to 93.1% screen-to-body ratio, a Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB RAM, 256GB storage, and a 3,765mAh battery. You can also expect OPPO's signature features such as VOOC 3.0 fast charging, and Hyper Boost 2.0. For its cameras, the Reno packs a 48MP+5MP rear dual cameras with 4K recording and Ultra Night Mode 2.0, and a 16MP front camera on its aforementioned sharkfin pop-up module. The OPPO Reno will be on shelves by the 28th, and is available for pre-orders now with a retail price of MYR 1,999. Pre-orders can be made at OPPO concept stores, authorised distributors, and on OPPO's online store. A higher spec variant of the OPPO Reno featuring the 10X Zoom camera system is due to be launched in Malaysia by 27 May.
